Thank you all for your very generous pledges and other support for this project. Unfortunately, our kickstarter drive ends today and I fell short. My fault because the goal was too high and much of it was during the Christmas holidays, a busy and expensive time for everybody. Because the goal wasn't met, you will not be charged for your pledges. Though I must say your support -- $2,500 is not pocket change in my world --was overwhelming and humbling.
And of course, this was only one source of funding I am seeking, so on we go. If you still feel that telling the story of the Trinity downwinders and getting them the recognition and compensation they deserve is important you can still contribute. Simply visit the website of our nonprofit fiscal sponsor, Quote-Unquote in Albuquerque at
http://quoteunquoteinc-biz.doodlekit.com/home and click on the "donate now" icon. They will ensure that the funds get to my production company to help continue the project.
Also I will be posting the project on another Web fund-raising platform, Indiegogo.com in a couple of days.
Also, our producer for the America's Children of the Bomb project, Stuart Overbey of halflife digital in Albuquerque just won a top award at the Irvine flim festival in California for her recent feature documentary, "The Forgotten Bomb" so we are in good company.
Again, thank you all so much for your pledges and encouragement.
